This set has previously circulated incorrectly as Newport 1960. Bill Monroe did not play Newport until 1963 so we know that was incorrect.

Neil Rosenberg helped to track down the correct date, with a resource at Bluegrass Unlimited: Walt Saunders

“I tracked down the date of the show Don Owens produced at Watermelon Park, in Berryville, Va. The date was Sunday, August 14, 1960. It was billed as ‘Blue Grass Day.’ I found the ad in the newspaper archives of the Handley Library in Winchester, Va. It appeared in The Winchester Star several days before the event. The ad listed the artists. Here they are, misspellings and all, in the order and pretty much how they appeared:

MAX WISEMAN

and the OSBORNE BROTHERS

and

SCOTTY STONEMAN,

BILL MONROE and the BLUE GRASS BOYS,

DON RENO and RED SMILEY,

BUCK RYAN and SMITTY IRWIN, BILL HARRIS.

The print for Wiseman, the Osbornes and Stoneman was bold and larger size than the other artists, which indicates who Owens considered to be the biggest draw, not only in the northern Shenandoah Valley, but also in the Washington, DC area, as he advertised in on his TV show.
Don knew all of these artists personally, so I assume the misspellings were not his, but likely the folks at the newspaper. Bill Harris of course is Bill Harrell, and Buck and Smitty were in his band.
This show was approximately a year before the one at Luray (I believe July 4, 1961), which has received all of the attention ever since.
